Look closely — children in the Syrian refugee camp with cameras (click to find out why)

National Geographic, Iraq

When I was in Iraq with Reverend Franklin Graham 3 weeks ago at a Syrian refugee camp there, we ran into a group of children all with digital cameras.   It was so unusual ….kids in a refugee camp with digital cameras?  Where did they get them?

I could not figure it out until the man in the beret approached us and explained.  He is a photographer with National Geographic and bought about 20 cameras for the kids….and is having the kids take pictures.  He believes they can capture images and emotions that others can not.

I hope some day we see all these pics taken by the kids in a National Geographic.
